Lenovo Thinkpad (Yoga, W, T series) wifi dropping or slow connection, Win 8.1

Recommended Posts

For most of the problems with the network cards dropping the WIFI signal the solution is to remove the Lenovo EMC Storage Program, which in turns removes the file called discovery.exe file. When running this file clogs your WIFI network with massive internal traffic, and no other device, including your Lenovo can connect to the Internet. With some more advanced routers you can still get some limited Internet connection.

You can try if this solution will fix your problem by going into the Task Manager, Services tab, and manually stop "Lenovo EMC Storage Program" service. Then go to the Details tab and force stop "discovery.exe" file, if still running.

If that fixes the your problem, then un-install the program called "Lenovo EMC Storage Program", and you are done. Just watch after that that your Lenovo Solution Center does NOT install it again.

Hope this will fix your problems.

      Hi,
       
      I need help in fixing my Thinkpad.

      I just got a T440p yesterday. It was working perfectly until the following:

      I reinstalled Windows and then I installed Vantage.

      I installed all the latest drivers.
      I also choose to install the bios update. The bios update ran in Windows and it asked me to restart. After restarting, the screen was blank. I tried powering it off and on and I saw the Thinkpad logo but after that the screen was blank.

      I tried powering on and off again and there's no Thinkpad logo now and the screen is just blank with the green power on. No sound, no nothing.


      Here's what I tried:
      Pressing the power button 10 times and then holding it for 30 seconds. Unplugged and battery is detachted Detached the CMOS battery and the reattached it Removed the ram, harddisk and optical disk drive. Attached the battery and inserted the charger. I turned it on and there was a couple of beeps Tried pressing FN+R and created a bootable USB I'd like to ask: How do I fix this? What do I need to do?
      Can I reflash the bios in some other way? Do I need to buy a new motherboard? Will this solve the issue? It's my first thinkpad and I'm really excited but I was bummed out that this happened. Can you please help me?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello !
      I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.

      Can you help me with detection?
      Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
       
      Thank you so much !!!
